The Delaware Department of Labor will be receiving a $1.4 million grant from the United States Department of Labor to provide job training and job search assistance to displaced workers who have been challenged by the effects from the economic downturn.
The grant supports on-the-job training, customized training, registered apprenticeships and other approached that connect individuals with employers.
“This funding will help us break some of the barriers preventing some Delawareans from returning to work, including training that will assist those who can transfer skills or learn new skills and return to the workforce,” said Gov. Jack Markell. “Our state Department of Labor has been focused on developing innovative programs that connect individuals with jobs that match their employable skills with potential employers. A combination of training, credentials, and work experience bring long-term employment success.”
